While I'm not a huge fan of getting older :/ I do love the opportunity to refresh and reassess that the arbitrary milestone January first provides. This year I am full of ideas about clearing out a lot of the items I've hoarded over the years. I can't wait to create more space and instill order in the space where the things I plan to keep will reside.
Saturday's Open Studios was a wonderful day of visiting with my parents and other Western Avenue artists. Plus a surprising turnout of people excited to be visiting WAS for the first time or super nice return customers who brought their friends! It was so much fun :)
Here are mom and dad on their way home, 30 miles south of Lowell. I really love it when they spend some time with me in my studio!
Sunday, D and I took down our cute little tree, Chet helped with the ornament storage, testing the box size for cat-shaped objects.
I finished my silk/cotton crochet scarf and I love it!
Now I'm working on something minty green (huge surprise, right?) in a bamboo, acrylic blend, mmmm...silky smooth. I love bamboo fabric!
I have been working on felty things in my studio:
I have already listed a cute heart pin In my Etsy shop for Valentine's day or any time you want to get a smile from people, because that's what I hear wearing my felty pins will result in :)
